Zimbabwean social media has been buzzing since the Zimbabwe Heads of Christian Denominations (ZHOCD) called for a suspension of elections for 7 years to address the political and economic problems currently bedevilling the country.
Unsurprisingly, most Zimbabweans are in disagreement with the church’s call for an electoral sabbatical.
Below are some of the reactions to the Sabbath proposal
How do you reward an illegitimate president with more years at the helm? That's witchcraft. Those Ediots masquerading as heads of Christian denominations shld be stopped in their tracks. They are hired Zanu-PF goons. https://t.co/4c40t9GBDc— mawarire jealousy (@mawarirej) October 9, 2019
The call is absurd & unconstitutional. Elections cannot be suspended without amending the Bill of Rights, thus necessitating a referendum. The Constitution is to the State what the Bible is to the Church. Feedom of religion is fundamental, as is the separation of Church & State! https://t.co/Crjt5t3hhK— Prof Jonathan Moyo (@ProfJNMoyo) October 8, 2019
I'm trying not to be mean but a 7 year political sabbath is exactly one of those "a stupid person's idea of a smart person" type of things.— Rudo Mudiwa (@Seka_hako) October 9, 2019
Like, things are so bad so let's give the people are at fault a chance to govern COMPLETELY UNCONTESTED?!!!
If that's how these Church people think,then i am not going to Church anytime soon,will have to praise God from home….phela this is just hallucination at its best!— Erick's (@Ericks11935184) October 8, 2019
